Question Use screen for motorcycle fairing ?

I noticed that a few of you guys with motorcycles have wanted to create fairings for your bike, but have expressed concern for crosswinds.
Would using window screen help this problem ?

Just a thought.

In my experience with a Vetter Windjammer fairing on a Honda CB750, the bike handled better in crosswinds with the fairing than without it.
